Steelers stuff Josh Allen and the Bills

Josh Allen vs Steelers 2021

It’s Overreaction Monday, so we have to be careful of making too much of one game. But I’ve been skeptical about Josh Allen. Of course he’s a very good player, but is really one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL? If you just look at last season, the answer might be “yes.” But is one season enough to come to that conclusion?

After signing a massive contract, Allen got off to a rough start in week one against the Steelers defense. He struggled with accuracy as the Bills lost at home 23-16. Next week he and the Bills get another tough defense as they travel to Miami. Let’s see if Allen’s struggles continue . . .

Buffalo Bills finally make the playoffs

This video is pretty awesome, as Buffalo Bills players watch the Cincinnati Bengals pull off a late win over the Baltimore Ravens to help the Bills break the longest running playoff drought in the NFL.

Bills fire Rex Ryan

Is anyone surprised? Rex Ryan is a quote machine, and he knows football, but somehow he just can’t seem to live up to his own hype. The Buffalo Bills had a top defense when he arrived, and then promptly regressed under Ryan. Bringing in his brother Rob didn’t help matters this season, and Rob was kicked to the curb as well today.

Meanwhile, the Bills can run the ball, but their passing game sucks. It looks like the team might be moving on from Tyrod Taylor as well as he won’t be starting this week. EJ Manuel will get the nod instead.

Sammy Watkins on growing up a Bills fan, Pepsi Halftime and facing Darrelle Revis

Rochester, New York is now the most hyped hometown in America thanks to Pepsi and stud wide receiver Sammy Watkins, a lifelong Bills fan.

This past Sunday, over 7,500 fans celebrated Rochester’s win in the Pepsi contest with their own ultimate Super Bowl halftime experience headlined by popular singing/songwriting duo Nico & Vinz, and appearances by new head coach Rex Ryan and Watkins.

Watkins was the NFL Rookie of the Week three times during the 2014 season and was the NFL Rookie of the Month for October. He also set single-season franchise rookie records with 65 receptions and 982 receiving yards, while scoring six touchdowns.

Talk about the work you did with Pepsi.

I worked with Pepsi on the “Hyped for Halftime” contest, which was a contest to find the best fans in the NFL. Rochester, NY did a great job as fans and I’m happy to say we won. They did it! They’ve been leading us for 30 to 40 years, helping us on and off the field, so this is a great treat for them.

One word to describe Bills fans is “crazy.” When we’re hitting at all points on offense and defense, the stadium gets crazy. Sometimes, we have to quiet them down so we can get the play call in. Pepsi was looking for the best fans and this proves we’ve got the best fans. And, Rochester got their own Pepsi Halftime Show, just like the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show with Katy Perry.

What’s your favorite play from your rookie season?

Winning the game against the Vikings when I scored on the goalline with one second left. It was a great play call. Coach Moore (former 10-year veteran wide receiver Rob Moore) put me in the position to make the play. He basically said, “This game is going to come down to the wide receivers. Get ready because it may be you.” He called the play, and I made a great play at the end of the game.

Who is the best defender you’ve faced?

Darelle Revis, the guy who I think is the best corner in the league.
